  • Energy Supply


    Germany has very limited and decreasing hydrocarbon reserves (46.5 Mt of oil and 37 bcm of natural gas end of 2018). The shale gas potential is estimated by the Federal Institute for Geosciences (BGR) at between 700 bcm and 2 300 bcm. Germany's subsoil is rich in lignite, with reserves of 36 Gt, whilst coal reserves are limited at 12 Mt.

  • Energy Prices


    On average, the price of electricity for households is more than double the price for industry due to numerous factors, including the rate of energy and network taxes, as well as larger consumers receiving lower rates per unit of energy through economies of scale. The average price for residential consumers has doubled since 2003, although it has remained rather stable since ...

  • Energy Consumption

    Per capita consumption is 3.6 toe (2018). This number is 20% above the EU average. Per capita electricity consumption is 6 350 kWh (13% above the EU average); it has been decreasing by 5% since 2012.

    Germany is the largest energy consumer in Europe. Total consumption decreased by 1.2%/year between 2006 and 2014, then rose by 1%/year to 314 Mt in 2017; in 2018 it fell again to ...
